From the Toronto Star - Senators weakening safety bill, Tories say:

The Conservative government has been trying to rework the consumer product safety regulatory framework for the past two years, but key Liberal members of the Senate social affairs committee voted Wednesday to amend Bill C-6, also known as the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act.

One amendment would deny inspectors the ability to issue a mandatory recall without consulting the manufacturer. Another would require them to get a search warrant before performing spot checks on home offices. The senators vote on the amendments next week.
